Migguel Anggelo is breaking barriers on the American stage, creating unique works that are reflective of the multicultural, multi-lingual, changing demographics of our country and times. The Brooklyn based, Venezuelan born artist began his career at 13 as Pinocchio in a South American touring production of the Broadway musical. He trained for a dozen years in classical ballet, studied voice at the Conservatory of Music in Cologne, Germany, has written music throughout all of his journeys as an immigrant in several countries, and has released two albums, the most recent being, La Casa Azul (co-written/produced by musical director, Mau Quiros and mixed by Grammy Award-winner Felipe Tichauer).
In addition to performing on many of the world’s greatest stages including Teatro Teresa Carreño in Caracas, Venezuela; Teatro Insurgentes in Mexico City; Teatro Lola Membrives and Teatro Gran Rex in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and The New World Center in Miami, Florida, Migguel performs regularly at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City. He has most recently been seen in Another Son of Venezuela, which he developed with Quiros and Obie Award winner David Drake. Previous shows created for Joe’s Pub were I, Inmigrante and Between Dreams. Anggelo, Drake, and Quiros were recently awarded a theater residency at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia where they developed Another Son of Venezuela. This past summer, Migguel Anggelo and the Immigrants performed a ten city concert tour of Russia as a cultural attaché under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State.
The collaborative trio of Anggelo, Quiros and Drake are currently at work on a new music-theater work entitled: The Suitcase Project, developed in part during a BRICLAB Residency at BRIC (Brooklyn, NY). The Suitcase Project explores issues of Hispanic immigration and assimilation into the United States of today through original music, characters and theatrical storytelling, chronicling what we carry and discard in the quest to follow our dreams.
